Marmite was my childhood food that i used to eat almost every other day. My ah ma would make rice porridge for me every afternoon for lunch growing up, and she would mix in marmite or bovril to flavour my porridge. Only when i moved to Australia did i learnt that it is supposed to be eaten with toast, only that we had the aussie version of veggiemite! I have been wanting to try out some new dishes using this childhood favourite of mine and i decided to start with fried rice! It turned out easy and yummy, and my marmite-hating husband loved it!
